Versacolor is a compact plotter which can easily be configured to A or B-size plots in monochrome or color on paper or film. Use Versacolor for fast output of computer graphics render- ings from your host computer, personal computer or workstation. Versacolor offers 300 ppi resolution and produces full color hard copy faster than any other thermal transfer unit in its price range. Plot colorful drawings, graphics, charts and maps that are bright and sharp. A full color A/A4 size drawing is ready in 45 seconds, monochrome in 15 seconds. B/A3-size plots are processed in 60 seconds, monochrome in 20 seconds. If E Unique easy load donor roll cartridge makes changing the dry ink donor roll a snap. Much easier than most other thermal plotters. Individual media cassettes store paper or film in different sizes. In addition to U.S. ANSI stan- dard A and B-sizes, Versacolor supports ISO/DIN output standards; A4 (210mm x 297mm) and A3 (297mm x 420mm). Use paper for check plots and reports. Transparency film is perfect for overheads of business graphics. Images are clean, smudge- free and archival. Colors don't fade overtime. A special TARGA plotting package available from Versatec, allows the user to output images from IBM PC's equipped with a TARGA board. TARGA captures full color images, from video signals, which can be output in seconds to Versacolor. The thermal transfer process. Versacolor uses heat and pressure to produce high quality plots. Dry ink donor rolls are used to produce the color. This makes Versacolor one of the easiest and cleanest plotters to use. Donor rolls are covered with a translu- cent wax based ink. Yellow, magenta and cyan ink panels are in sequence on the color donor roll. Both the donor roll and media pass over the thermal print head which applies heat and melts the ink onto the media. A pres- sure roller is used to help press the melted wax ink onto the media. A multiple pass technique is used (one for each primary color). At the end of each pass the media is backed up and then passes over the thermal print head to receive the next primary color. All three passes are used to produce a crisp black, or if the user wishes an optional four color donor roll with a true black can be used. Users may purchase black monochrome donor rolls for fast monochrome plotting. A full range of color. Versacolor offers the user seven differ- ent dot colors and over 2048 color shades when using Versatec's Versaplot software. Detailed graphics, printed circuit boards, integrated circuits, busi- ness graphics, solids modeling and other data are more easily distinguish- able with color. Fast processing. Capture your color drawings directly from your CRT screen with Versacolor and Versatec's Model 250 or 255 RGB video controllers. CRT data is captured in seconds and output to Versacolor. Versacolor allows you to get high qual- ity hard copy quickly without tying up your terminal for minutes at a time. Versacolor is also compatible with Versatec's RPM 800 series of raster- izers. The RPM 800 series quickly processes data and removes the burden from the host, saving valuable CPU time. RPM can drive your plotter at full speed and produce complex high resolution plots. Special features. Versacolor has an operator's panel which includes keys for color intensity, enlargement and form feed. Enlarge- ment capabilities are available in three sizes: 2x2; 3x3; and 2x4. Switches indicate errors such as media out, donor roll out, jams, cover open and overheat. Compact in size, about the size of a typewriter, Versacolor can easily fit on a desktop. Quiet operation enables office environment operation. Keep it next to your terminal for quick and handy output. Interfaces. A Versatec parallel interface with Versatec Color Data Protocol is stan- dard on Versacolor. This interface makes Versacolor compatible with Versatec controllers and software. A Centronics parallel interface is also available. Software support. Integrated Versaplot software pack- ages are available for plotter operation. Versaplot Random Enhanced 2.1 soft- ware supports output to Versacolor from most popular computers. Fast FORTRAN callable subroutines com- patible with basic pen plotter routines, allow most user and commercial programs to output to Versacolor. Supplies features. Versatec supplies are designed expressly for use on the Versacolor thermal transfer plotter. Choose from paper or a transparency film. Donor rolls are available in monochrome and three or four colors, and are easily replaceable. A light on the operator panel will let you know when it is time to replenish media or the donor rolls. Versacolor supplies won't spill or cause a mess. 1 o Specifications Writing Method Thermal transfer Media Sizes Model 2756 (US > ANSI A-size) >ANSIB-size) 8>2x11 inches (US 11 x17 inches Model 2766 (ISOA4-size) (ISOA3-size) 297mmx210mm 420mm x 297mm Donor rolls Three color Four color Monochrome Yellow, magenta, cyan Yellow, magenta, cyan, black Black Voltage Requirements 90-130 VAC or 180-260 VAC switch selectable Power Source Frequency 50/60 Hz ±3 Hz Power Consumption 600 VA maximum Operating Environment Temperature, ±5°C to ±35°C (±41 °F to ±95°F) Humidity 30% to 80% RH (Non-condensing) Standards (EMI/RFI) UL, CSA, VDE: FCC Class B, VDE Class B Dimensions 9.5"Hx21"Wxl9.7"D(245mmX530mX500mm) Weight 81 .4 lbs.
